Sierra Leone is the birth place of Martin’s father. Since visiting throughout her youth she has always had a desire to return with photographic intentions.
Martin’s aim for Freetown was to visually express the many diverse and interesting people that reside there. Spending time with a variety of different individuals and groups throughout the city, Freetown has given the viewer an insight into this exotic place. The portrait approach gives the viewer the ability to step into the frame.
Martin plans to return to Freetown later in this year and further develop this project. More of this series can be found upon her website.
